I am a lot of things, but I’ve been “crafty” for probably the longest. I think my Southern upbringing helped to cultivate that…there wasn’t much to do for a home-schooled kid in the Hill Country region of Mississippi, so every trip to the library involved a craft book of some sort. From friendship bracelets to cross stitch to potholders with those weird stretchy bands, I tried it all. I discovered scrapbooking in 1995, and it’s been a long term relationship with paper crafts ever since.
A college road trip in 1999 introduced me to the state of Washington. It was love at first sight, and I’ve been a proud Pacific Northwest resident since August 2000. I call Seattle home, and yes, I love the rain. And coffee.
In addition, I am a music fanatic, reader, hat wearer, and am always looking forward to my next trip to anywhere! Here are some other places you can find me:
